Don’t confuse him with the musicologist of the same name. This Spampinato is an art man. Painting in psychedelic fractals that call to mind the idea of eternal return, Francesco Spampinato blurs the distinction between whether his paintings are collapsing inward or exploding out. But if we do lose our senses a little as we ponder his work, we might be able to guess this is part of the point. Spampinato is a theorist too, and one of his favorite subjects is hypnotism.
